Hi everybody. I have decided to reach out and ask for some advice from everyone here regarding Talking therapy and Sertraline.
I've been suffering with depression for a couple of years and, eventually, faced up to it and decided to speak to a therapist (4 weeks ago). I won't bore you all with the details but she was helpful and I had 3 x 1hour sessions, over the telephone, but the last session she said she thought we were at the end of the course and wished me well. I guess I'm still surprised at how quickly she ended my "treatment" and I feel a little let down. I know we covered quite a bit of ground but I'm feeling as though we could have gone a little further. Am I wrong to feel this way?
I also had a phone conversation with my GP who believed Sertraline would be beneficial to me. I've read quite a few articles here about this medication and up to now (2 weeks in) I suffer from over-tiredness, sweating and nausea - will this get better? Is it right to still feel anxious and a little panicky occasionally? Some days I just don't want to get out of bed and I feel there's not alot to get up for! To be honest though, the meds must be working a little by now as I'm often "calmer" than before but how long will I feel this way?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
